The freestanding Ebony Cross of Resurrection is an exquisite and absolutely unique depiction of the movement from Good Friday to Easter morning, from bloody, violent, and humiliating death on a cross to New Eternal Life, free forever from suffering, death, and decay. The filigree opening in this cross depict the dawn and inbreaking of the Resurrection in and through the hard and unforgiving wood of the cross. The Resurrection is indeed God’s absolutely definitive, irrevocable, irreversible defeat of death – the very death of death! This filigreed Ebony Cross of Resurrection is indeed one of the most treasured gems of the Creator Mundi Gallery. This is a gift for extraordinarily special moments and events and for an extraordinarily special person! This a true, one-of-a-kind, heirloom gift to be passed on from generation to generation.
A Labor of Faith, Hope, and Love from a Premier American Artisan and Master of Artwork in Exotic Woods
The Ebony Cross of Resurrection is a solid ebony wood cross 12 inches high, 12 inches wide and 2 inches thick, resting upon a solid babinga wood 12 inches wide, 6 inches deep, and 3 inches high. The American artist who conceived, carved, filed, and polished this marvelous filigreed work of sacred art to perfection labored for many, many hours. A truly labor of faith, hope, and love!
Jesus – Conqueror of Death, Firstborn of the New Creation
The Ebony Cross of Resurrection abstractly depicts Jesus rising from the dead as a transformation within the wood of this cross itself. Jesus’ Resurrection was not a resuscitation of a corpse (as was the case with Lazarus). No, the resurrection of Jesus is a radical new beginning, the one true Beginning of the End – the beginning of the transformation of all of creation into “a new heaven and a new earth” (Revelation 21:1-5a). The Ebony Cross of Resurrection is a beautiful and exquisite gift, to be sure, but also a reminder that death is not the final word on any life, not on ours, and not on the lives of those whom we love.
